It’s cold, wet, drizzly Thanksgiving November, and the only thing that keeps you alert (other than your triple grande Americano) is the nagging feeling that you should be starting your Christmas list sometime soon (yeah, already!). Well, Georgetown can help you with that, yes indeed. The Georgetown Art Attack art walk, on Saturday November 10th, 6 – 9 pm, has a dizzying array of cool local art (suiting budgets of all kinds), cool local crafts, and delicious beer, wine and food to fuel your hunt for the PERFECT Christmas present this year! Forget the iPad and the wool socks – art is forever.
Guided Tours Available: In an effort to help navigate Art Attack and facilitate connectivity and collaboration with artists and curators, Amanda Michele Dellinger and James Caudle lead a tour called Heart of the Attack. To sign up or learn more, go to www.facebook.com/HeartoftheAttack
All Aboard the Art Ride! Whether it’s the rain or sore shins that slow you down, the Art Ride bus is ready to whisk you off to your next Georgetown destination!
